'Rebecca', pencil and watercolour ,8.3 × 11.7cm, 2010.
"When it comes to love, there are a million theories to explain it. But when it comes to love stories, things are simpler. A love story can never be about full possession. Love stories depend on disappointment, on unequal births and feuding families, on matrimonial boredom and at least one cold heart. Love stories, nearly without exception, give love a bad name . . . ." Jeffrey Eugenides

This drawing was inspired by the short story The Moon In It's Flight by Gilbert Sorrentino, included in Jeffrey Eugenides' My Mistress's Sparrow Is Dead.
